Atomwear is an innovative project of a modular smart band, designed specifically for Makers/DIYers. Atomwear aims to create an easy-to-use, micro-sized, expandable development kit for everyone. It’s an open source project based on a bracelet (main board) that can be connected to various modules. Each module performs one or two functions:

battery charger module, acceleration sensor module, temperature sensor module, gyroscope module, OLED display module, heart rate sensing module, etc. Wireless charger module, GPS module, NFC module are in development. All the modules have a 24-pin interface to connect with the main board. Atomwear use Bluetooth low energy technology to connect with the smartphone.

The project is completely open source (source code, hardware design, dev kit), and already support Android. When you have finished assembling the various modules you can insert the smart band in a rubber strap / case. The project started seven months ago and is in an advanced state of development. Atomwear is ready to mass production if the fundraiser on Kickstarter will go well. We will continue to follow the project, stay tuned for more information.
